Gratitude Can Change Your Brain: How to Practice Gratitude Daily

This is the time of year when the practice of gratitude (hopefully) becomes foremost in our minds. For me, it is a reminder to get back to my conscious practice of being grateful every day.

Sometimes that is easier said than done.

There are a lot of psychological and physiological health benefits to practicing gratitude, In fact, Robert Emmons, the world’s leading scientific expert on gratitude, had a lot to say about why gratitude is good for our physical, emotional and spiritual health and has a positive impact on our relationships. My gratitude practice consists of two ideas that were given to me by two coaches a few years ago:

  1. Write down my accomplishments.
  2. Write down what I'm grateful for every night before going to bed.
